Manchester United could well be about to add a Brazilian star to their squad if reports from Metro are to be believed and punters in the Football Transfer Tavern would love to see this come off.
United are reportedly keen on Lucas Silva with the creative midfielder also catching the eye of Jose Mourinho and Chelsea.
However, it is Louis van Gaal and the Red Devils who are leading the chase for the Cruzeiro star after opening talks with the player’s agent.
Speaking about his client’s future, Silva’s agent, Luis Rocha claimed: “There are not many details that I can tell you, but I can confirm that I was approached by people linked to Manchester United.
“We are now just waiting for the official proposal.”
As one of our punters notes over a beer and a burger special, we think that the 21-year-old could make a real difference for United and add some much needed spark and creativity to the passing in the middle of the park.
